Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is a concern because 1.5 million women are raped and/or physically assaulted by an intimate partner every year and domestic violence is the leading cause of injuries to women ages 15-44 (CDC, 2003). Healthy People 2010 guidelines contain a list of objectives for domestic violence. The major goal is to enhance detection and care for survivors of domestic violence."
